I was contacted by a wedding coordinator to be her featured vendor for the week/month, something. Anyway, she gave me a list of questions to answer, one of which has me stuck. There are so many things to say to answer this question.

...in working with brides and grooms, is there any piece of advice you would like to offer?




How do I narrow it down? What is most important for them to know? Please throw in your opinion and what you would say.

Please help me with my homework! (High School flashbacks! icon_cry.gif )

Plan the wedding you want, but realize to get quality, you may have to give up quantity in guest list.

I just left a person's site, and her slogan was "good cake isn't cheap and cheap cake isn't good!" SO true! thumbs_up.gif

My favorite line: Don't play the poverty card with me and then tell me you're planning a party for 300 of your "dearest and closest friends" and expect me to supplement the cost of your party. Not going to happen.

Do the research .... find out what things cost .... look at your budget .... and get REAL about it!
